As many of you know a group of us Georgia woodworkers have gotten together a few times over the summer and had a great time. It is a great group of guys and I really enjoy us talking and learning from each other. So far we have met at different locations with no regularly scheduled dates. It is difficult to keep this going as I will tend to procrastinate until last minute which is what I did this last meeting. In the end there were only four of us but many other keep asking to be left...
This Sunday I met up with the one and only ND2ELK (aka Tom). Tom was in my area to visit some family and was nice enough to contact me. I really enjoyed learning about Tom’s successful woodworking career. We were able to get in some good shop talk. I must say we are lucky to have Tom as a member of our woodworking community here on Lumberjocks. I appreciate the correspondence with everyone online but actually meeting another member is special. Thanks Tom for spending some of your valua...
I had a chance, yesterday, to spend another delightful afternoon/evening with Mike (aka jockmike2). Each time I visit, it seems my confidence level goes up a notch and I spend more time doing some actual turning. So there was much progress with the bowl I was working on and it would seem that it is not destined to spend the rest of its days as a permanent addition to Mike’s chuck. The piece we worked on is a chunk of maple that Mike was kind enough to donate to the teaching process. ...
I am a guy who likes a deal. I scan the flyers for discount coupons, special sales, and twofer specials. Yesterday, I got the best deal I have mustered in quite some time. Two Lumberjocks for the price of one! I went over Mike's yesterday to do some woodturning and Rick, another LJ member was there. At first I was confused as I didn’t recognize “Rustic” without his tuxedo when he greeted me and I thought Mike had some plastic surgery done to make himself look younger a...
Hello fellow Philadelphia area lumberjocks. I would like to invite you to join some fellow woodworkers at the next meeting of the Montgomery County Woodworkers Guild (MCWWG). We will be meeting on Tuesday, Feb 2, 2010, from 7pm – 9pm at the Philadelphia Furniture Workshop. On the schedule for this meeting one of the members will demo his box joint making jig and we will have the usual show and tell. So stop by and meet some fellow woodworkers, see a great shop and maybe have a good...
LJ member Dave Mitchell and his wife stopped by tonight. Dave, also known as Splinters, lives in the far northwestern corner of Montana in West Glacier. That is at the western gate of Glacier National Park. He and his wife are traveling to the midwest for a visit with family and they had to come right by my place in Billings, MT. Since I live just spittin’ distance off the freeway and the KOA is just down the street they decided to stop by. Dave is a real Montana kind of guy, a...
Ok fellow Mid-Atlantic Lumberjocks, Its that time of year again. The Woodworking Show is coming to Northern Virgina this month. I would like to meet up with as many of you as possible. The Baltimore show was much better than last year and I am hoping this year’s show live up to that as well. I will be in the market for some Lathe tools to go with my new Nova lathe that I purchased last weekend. (that’s another blog for another day.) Let me know if you are planning on attending ...
Calling all Mid Atlantic LumberJocks! I met up with Karson at the Baltimore Woodworking Show earlier today and I mentioned to him I would like to see a Mid-Atlantic LumberJocks Picnic or party this year. He thought it would be a great idea. I would like to get a feel of how many of LumberJocks in the Mid-Atlantic area would be interested in meeting this year. I am thinking late June as a time line. Between the time school let out and the July 4th holiday. We thought that the Baltimore/W...
After reading Martin’s blog yesterday about all of us having some lumberjock club meetings, I did one of those head slap moments and thought out loud, “Why didn’t I think of that?” What a great idea, a nice way to tie us altogether….actual face, to face club meetings. I was first visited by Joel Tille from Iowa. Then, it was Kevin Larcom from Wichita. Now, Karson tells me that he will honor me by a visit late this summer while he is in Kansas seeing famil...
